Manchester City newest striker, Erling Haaland, has named the Premier League team he looks forward to facing the most.
The Norwegian striker after signing for the Premier League champions is already relishing his first Manchester derby, facing Manchester United.
When asked about the team he looks forward to playing, the 21-year-old replied: “I don’t like to say the words but… Manchester United.”
His father, Alfe-Inge, played for City and Leeds United, of which both team have fierce rivalries with Manchester United as well.
Haaland’s father suffered a career ending injury at the Old Trafford after being tackled by Roy Keane.
Haaland completed a switch from Borussia Dortmund in a deal that is worth an initial £51.2m. He was handed the No. 9 shirt following the departure of Brazilian forward, Gabriel Jesus, to Arsenal.
He scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund and is poised to lead City’s attack under Pep Guardiola.
